Abstract


Purpose: This study aimed to assess the clinical outcomes of prostatic urethral lift in Korean patients with bothersome lower urinary tract symptoms due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

Materials and Methods: Thirty-two men with symptomatic BPH were consecutively treated in a tertiary care center in Korea. To be included in the present analysis, patients had to meet the following criteria: age ≥50 years, International Prostatic Symptom Score (IPSS) >12, and prostate volume between 30 mL and 80 mL. Patients were evaluated up to a median follow-up period of 1 year post-procedure. The primary outcomes included symptom relief, improvement of quality of life (QOL), and preservation of sexual function.

Results: All procedures were finished with a mean of 2.2 implants without any serious complication. The numbers of patients diagnosed with diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and ischemic heart disease were 16 (50.0%), 24 (75.0%), and 9 (28.1%), respectively. Patients experienced symptom relief by 1 week that was sustained for 12 months. The mean IPSS, QOL, and maximum flow rate improved to 43%, 70%, and 25% by 1 week, and to 41%, 60%, and 32% by 12 months (p<0.001), respectively. There were no occurrences of early urge incontinence, retrograde ejaculation, or erectile dysfunction. Patient-reported adverse events were mild and transient.

Conclusions: Prostatic urethral lift is a safe and effective treatment for BPH in the Asian population. This treatment is minimally invasive, can be performed under local anesthesia, and may be an appropriate method for fragile patients.
